After soaking in the joy of Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games series, I have decided to embark upon reading the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. I enjoyed the film, though it had some silly moments that are easy to criticize. I expect that the first book, Divergent, will capture that almost Harry Potteresque feel of the desire to belong, and being tossed into a tumultuous reality where everyone is to be questioned. What do I expect out the book?
- A sense of hopelessness that the movie lacked in a way. For a dystopian society, things were not in much disarray, though I am curious about the walls around the city.
- A more in depth look at the different factions and not just a fluffy brush against them. Harry Potter would have benefited from more information about the different houses and The Hunger Games would have benefited greatly from a few hundred extra pages that went into more detail about the districts.
- A book that is written well, and not clumsily constructed Twilight like musings that are dry and sleep inducing.
- Fun Times.
- A cliffhanger ending that will lead me to finish the book, and not stop in the middle.
Once I finish Divergent, I will report back with my opinion of the book. This is just me sharing with the world what I plan to read!
